Parking is at the yellow springs trail parking lot on wilson rd. First part of hike was steep and gets your blood flowing. Interesting to walk past an old bottle plant ruins and the end is a very pretty flat walk along the creek but very pretty. Nice mix of climbing and walking.

Glad I found this trail after living so many years near Philly. It only took me 20 minutes to get to the trail and it took me a bit more than 1 hour to complete. There are much better trails further, that have better views, challenges, are longer and are more variable but this was a great work-out on an early morning in a great setting. There is a large parking lot at the start, as shown on the map. I did the trail clockwise and instead of following the road, I should have walked toward Knox House; that is the way to miss the road/Bridge section. Another option of doing the trail is to park at General Washington's HQ. That parking lot is smaller but there are bathrooms nearby. The trail on Mount Joy is flatter and easier to walk than the trail on Mount Misery that has more (small) rocks but both trails are well maintained.

This was a wonderful trail with elevation that was perfect for me and my Golden. Trail was clean and well maintained.

beautiful trail. definitely check it out

This loop has become a weekend favorite as it's one of the best challenges for elevation in the suburban Philly area. Trails are well maintained with a mixture between natural pathways and gravel. There's a few streams and a larger Creek before the mount Misery trail for dogs to drink/swim. Only annoyance is that this time of year there are frequently weddings before the mount Misery trail and I've had to wait for professional photography sessions to let me pass. Not a huge deal, just kind of awkward.

Very pretty trail. Well maintained.

Beautiful! The wildflowers were blooming and trees were budding. There was a section of the trail that had gorgeous Virginia Bluebells growing along the creek right near the ruins of the bottling plant. Nice, steep uphill hike to get you warmed up when you start at the Mount Misery trailhead.

A very enjoyable hike, very easy with well marked trails.

Best local to philly elevation and challenge. Not over populated either. If you don’t want the cross the covered bridge on the road you can go straight down the library driveway and it crosses the creek and meets the path out at the other side of the stables near the parking area.

Took a beautiful hike here yesterday on an unseasonably warm day in January. The trees were bare since we are in the winter season but there was still a lot of beautiful nature to behold. There were a few uphill stints that got the blood moving. I even passed three men riding their horses along the trail and friendly fellow hikers walking with dogs. The only unexpected part of this hike was that it finished (or starts depending on the direction) by walking through a covered bridge that didn’t have a pedestrian walkway and there was a brief (2-3 min) stretch after the bridge where I had to walk beside a busy road. All in all though the hike was great and I would do it again!
